My friend Kristine's brother painted this beautiful Advent calendar for her family. I have to admit I didn't even know what Advent was. Apparently it was started by the German Lutheran's to start on the 4th Sunday before Christmas as preparation for the second coming and to commemorate the first coming of Christ. Windows hide a toy or chocolate for children until Christmas day. There are special readings etc... Do any of you participate in Advent?
Have a blessed day.
